CIGAR, STEAK, AND SCOTCH DAY

MIND

Sigmund Freud 1856

“The mind is like an iceberg; it floats with one-seventh of its bulk above water.”

*You do not have to share everything you know. Keep the best stuff to yourself.

BODY

Adrianne Palicki 1983

*Work out like you are getting ready to be in a G.I. Joe movie

SOUL

Willie Mays 1931

“I was very fortunate to play sports. All the anger in me went out. I had to do what I had to do. If you stay angry all the time, then you really don’t have a good life.”

*As you are striving for a better life, realize that anger can’t be a part of it. Find your outlet.

MONEY

Chris Paul 1985

“I always have said that the most valuable thing I have isn’t money; it’s my time.”

*Time is not money. Time is more valuable than money. You are striving to make more money for freedom.

ENTERTAINMENT

George Clooney 1961

*Watch Clooney win an Oscar in ‘Syriana’

FOOD

Orson Welles 1915

His favorite meal was two rare steaks and a pint of Scotch.

*Eat and drink like Welles and end the night with a cigar like Freud.

SNUB(S)

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
